I am a diehard Oscar Wilde fan. He is my all-time favourite author and playwright. I admire him as an artist and as an LGBTQ public figure. Paying respects at his grave was one of the most moving experiences of my life. The rest of...More

This cemetery is stunningly beautiful but HUGE and sits on a steep hill so be ready for some climbing and hiking to see what you want. Also make sure to go early or at least to give yourself time to walk around. We went later...More

If you are into this (not for everyone), it is a step back into history with all the famous people whose final resting place is in Paris. Serene and quiet, you get to see the who's who of french society that were buried. Certainly worth...More

Sculptures and elaborate gravesites are an artful eyeful here. From Chopin to Marie Laurencin to Jim Morrison. But this is 108 acres. Do your homework and map out what graves you'd like to see ahead of time. It's too big and too crowded (graves) to...More

Must see for every Oscar Wilde fan! It is located close to Avenue Carette and Avenue Circulaire near the Rue des Rondeaux entrance to the Pére Lachaise Cemetry (Cimitiere du Pére-Lachaise).

Pere- Lachaise is so lovely and unique! Don't pass it up because it's a cemetery. The monuments are creepy and old and new and unique and artistic and so very interesting. You could literally walk half a day in here and just get lost in...More

As many people have noted, it's highly advisable to go in the back way, via the Gambetta Metro stop. It's less crowded at that end, and you'll be walking DOWN the hills towards the main entrance rather than up. I was in Paris at midsummer...More

Belleville / Pere Lachaise
At the eastern edge of Paris lies Belleville / Père
Lachaise, an understated wonderland of local
treasures. Alongside the world-famous cemetery,
family-owned delicatessens and cafés nestle between
local stores and establishments. The richness of the
population here has created a little Chinatown of
Asian restaurants, and the area comes to life at night
by a funky underground scene. Façades change from one
